Carlsbad Art Wall July 2022

Art in Carlsbad

The 3rd mural for 2022 for the Carlsbad Art Wall is another beauty.

Here’s the Carlsbad Art Wall for April 2022 in case you missed it.

The most recent Carlsbad Art Wall was painted in mid-July by artist Matthew Perdoni. This whimsical mural captures the spirit of beach life here in Carlsbad. The sun was casting some interesting palm tree shadows today when I took this. It’s the first opportunity I’ve had to go by since it was painted.

Well-known Carlsbad artist, Bryan Snyder, founded the Carlsbad Art Wall (CAW) in 2015. The Wall is in cooperation with the owner of Senor Grubby’s Mexican Restaurant in Carlsbad Village.

The Carlsbad Art Wall provides residents and visitors the chance to enjoy temporary public art by local, regional, and occasionally international, artists. Furthermore the public has the opportunity to watch artists at work on their creations.

If you live in the area you have probably seen the changing murals at Senor Grubby’s Mexican restaurant on the east-facing wall. The Wall is west of the train tracks, opposite the Village Faire Shopping Center, as you head to the beach. You can’t miss it!

Carlsbad’s reputation as an arts community continues to grow with abundant public art (interactive map on the City of Carlsbad website). You’ll also find art galleries, performance theater, and multiple music offerings throughout the year. The Carlsbad Art Wall is a very special part of our arts scene!
